Chris Eubank Jr believes James DeGale will never admit what really happened during their sparring session in 2012.
The two Brits rivalry was sparked seven years ago when Eubank Jr, who was just a few fights into his pro career at the time, claimed he schooled DeGale in a sparring session.
DeGale has always dismissed Eubank Jrs taunts as nonsense, but the pair will finally be able to settle their differences in the ring.
The super-middleweights meet on 23 February in London with DeGale declaring the loser will have to retire from boxing.
And while Eubank Jr refused to go into much detail about their training sessions together, the 29-year-old admitted it was his word against DeGales after seven years of going back and forth.
Hes not going to bring it up because he knows what happened, and I just dont feel the need to bring it up, Eubank Jr told IFL TV.
Its one of those things where its a he said, she said. At the end of the day its not the fight, the fight is on February 23. Thats when we get to show whos the real gravy.
DeGale described Eubank Jrs post-sparring message on Twitter as madness and believes that even then the young novice was trying to build interest in their fight.
Eubank Jr and DeGale came face-to-face at a press conference in London, at which Chunky labelled their showdown the retirement fight.
I see that as weakness, Eubank Jr said of DeGales retirement comments.
I see that as embarrassing for a man to even have that word in his mind, let along saying it at a press conference. Shameful.
And its encouraging. A fighter coming into a fight thinking about retiring if he loses, thats good for me.
That thought hasnt even come into my head. He can label it whatever he wants. At the end of the day all that matters is I train right, I spar right and I teach this kid a lesson.
